Membership & Gating content: Overview

This guide is designed to help you understand and implement the three types of content locking available on our platform:
  1. Password Protection
  1. Email Verification Access
  1. Segment-Specific Content Restriction
Each method offers unique advantages tailored to different needs, ensuring your content is accessible to the right audience.

Password Protection

Password Protection is the simplest form of content locking, where content is secured with a password. This method doesn't require user sign-up or segmentation, making it ideal for quickly sharing protected content with a select audience who have the password.
Use Cases:
  • Internal Documentation: Secure company wikis, policies, or internal reports that are meant for employee access only.
  • Draft pages: While you are building your site, you can lock specific pages from audience but still visible to your internal team who knows the password.
  • Private Communities: Lock access to community resources or forums that are meant for members' eyes only, enhancing privacy and exclusivity.

Email Verification Access

Email Verification Access is a secure method to gate content behind an email sign-in process. Users are required to enter their email address, receive a magic link, and upon clicking, gain access to the protected content. This method is straightforward and enhances user engagement by making exclusive content accessible after a simple verification process.
Use Cases:
  • Lead Generation: Ideal for collecting emails before seeing premium content.
  • Newsletter Signups: Sign them to a newsletter automatically when they sign in to see your premium contents.
  • Upsell paid products: Nurture the website visitors and later enroll them in a community, offer paid content etc.

Segment-Specific Content Restriction

This method allows creators to restrict access to content based on specific user segments. It requires the manual addition of users to different segments through the dashboard, enabling the delivery of tailored content to various groups based on their interests, behavior, or subscription level.
Use Cases:
  • Membership Tiers: Differentiate content access by membership levels (e.g., free, premium, VIP) to provide exclusive benefits.
  • Personalized Learning Paths: For educational platforms, offer specialized content to students based on their learning progress or interests.
  • Client Portals: Offer a personalized space for each client to access project updates, resources, and communications tailored to their specific needs and engagement with your services.
